Glad for the outcome, delighted she had a firearm or two handy, but, with respect, I hope someone coaches her about safe revolver grip.

Intruder breaks in with a shovel and charges, stopped non-violently by a handgun. Homeowner demonstrates for the news with a two-handed revolver grip that would seriously injure her hand. I guess. I'm not about to try it out, but I'm very happy she was able to do the right thing and defend her family.

It would appear that her training didn't include revolvers, and that she's never fired that particular one.........after getting 'bitten' by cylinder gap blow-by just once, you would remember to never use any grip method that puts flesh forward of the cylinder face......

Why was the bail set so low?

:iagree: It seems like aggravated assault charge should have been included.
